General Dynamics Wins $663M to Produce Navy Destroyer

General Dynamics subsidiary Bath Iron Works won a $663 million U.S. Navy contract modification to produce a guided missile destroyer, General Dynamics announced Tuesday.

Bath Iron Works will construct DDG 116, the fourth ship in the Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class construction-continuation program.

Bath Iron Works is also contracted to produce DDG 115, the third ship in the program.

The DDG 51 multi-mission guided missile destroyers support naval fleet groups including the carrier battle groups, surface action groups and amphibious groups.

The destroyers are powered by gas turbine propulsion and have the Aegis combat system and weapons systems, including the Tomahawk anti-ship and land-attack missiles.
